Why are network device vendors so damn stingy with flash?.....

Seems like every switch I've ever had has a stupidly small amount of flash storage and that always ends up causing problems as OS sizes grow.
Case in point: Our EX3400s have only 2GB of flash. That turns out to be so little that software upgrades are a real problem because it wants to use lots of space for the purposes of validation and keeping rollback copies, but there just isn't the space.
I don't understand why they cheap out on it on expensive network devices. However they all seem to, same issue with our Ciscos before. I want to tell these asshats "Take whatever amount you are thinking of putting on it and quadruple it, then put that on it."
